Let the River Run Wild and Free...

"Let the river run wild and free,
the river of Your love for me.
Fill my heart and my soul,
till I overflow."

This weekend I had a fantastic time with brothers and sisters from Clemson and Central, but really we had people come from all over the state just for the rafting trip. It was a great time of camp fire chat, games, good food, great fellowship and rafting!
We really had a blast and I am so glad we were able to go to celebrate Kyle's birthday. My heart and soul were filled with wonderful memories and some great laughs! Here are a few pictures. More can be accessed here.

I have been studying Peace from a Fruit of the Spirit bible study... The study last night was on Psalm 91 and says to start at verse 14 and insert your name for all he/him words... this is what I got...

Psalm 91: 14-16
"Because Maddie loves me," says the LORD, "I
will rescue Maddie; I will protect Maddie, for Maddie acknowledges my name.
Maddie will call upon me, and I will answer Maddie;
I will be with Maddie in trouble, I will deliver Maddie and honor Maddie.
With long life will I satisfy Maddie and show Maddie my salvation."

Pretty powerful. Try your name. Say it aloud for the best effect.

So here's the point: I am working on getting peace in my life. :)

It is a done deal!

So today I registered for the 5K. I am going to do it. I have set my mind to it. I have been thinking about it for a week and since then I have ran  2 miles on 3 separate occasions, ran 1 mile, and walked 1 mile every day that I wasn't running... The hard part will be finding time to run at camp next week...

My goal: Realistically, I cannot run the entire thing. I would die. But I know I can run twice as much as I walk. And if I walk as little as I am planning, my goal is to do the run in under 38 minutes. Hey, not record breaking by any stretch, but it breaks any record for me as a Jurek (maybe even faster than my soccer-playing Harlan days...) 

So here is the point: Pray. Hard
